Using Vintage Fabric on Chairs for a Period Look
I think using vintage fabric on a vintage chair makeover whenever I can is the way to go. Whenever possible I look for vintage fabrics and if they are in good shape I save them for a project such as this one. This garage sale "score" of brightly colored vintage linen curtains made my day and I had just the project in mind for them - these1940's looking chairs and small table project. I think they look a lot like the table and chairs in the original Walt Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs movie! I especially love the oak motif on this fabric and the colors were perfect for my custom mixed Annie Sloan chalk paint which I had already started painting before I found the fabric.
